The theme of the ICPCE 2019 is: A spectrum of opportunities to meet psychology, social work, counselling and education experts

ICPCE 2019 is an interdisciplinary event that brings together scholars and practitioners from a range of backgrounds (e.g., public health, government and public policy, psychology, medicine, sociology, allied health professions, education, sports and exercise science, social sciences, media studies, counselling, and the lay public) to consider research, policy, rhetoric and practice within the disciplines of psychology, counselling and education.

ICPCE 2019 will be held at the stunning campus of Universiti Malaysia Sabah in Kota Kinabalu. 

Indeed, these three allied disciplines have never faced greater challenges than in the current environment. It is our hope that through collective efforts, we can arm ourselves with essential information so that as psychologists, counsellors and educators we will be better able to maximise the opportunities for change and improvement as they are presented.
